“A gem of an hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2013

My wife found this hotel and we stayed to celebrate my birthday. What a treat. On arrival we were given an upgrade . The room was beautiful as was the hotel itself. The bed was exceptionally comfortable with great pillows! It also had a great sound system. The hotel is in a quiet area with easy access to the city centre. It really is a luxury boutique hotel. What also makes this hotel so special were the staff. They were friendly, helpful and nothing was too much trouble. Could not have stayed anywhere nicer for my birthday. We will go back to this hotel again for a longer stay.

Fancy little touches to make a great night's stay become an amazing night to remember. Just all the little details. I'd rather not spoil it, better to experience it as a surprise. You won't regret a night. Here, it's great for a quick romantic getaway.

I have stayed in many hotels in Dublin over the last few years but this is the only one I would actually want to go back to purely for the experience of staying in it. I have several dietary needs and the hotel catered for them all, an experience I have not had before in any of the hotels. The decor and standard of finish in our room was excellent, the iPod not only had great music on it but it also had walking tours of Dublin! The breakfast was excellent (we had dinner elsewhere) and there was a great range of room dining options available but we did not need to avail of them. Staff were also a level above other places, right from our arrival to departure we were shown the utmost helpfulness and courtesy. The hotel is conveniently situated for theatres, shops and sightseeing. I am looking forward to a return trip here and have no hesitation in recommending Dylan Hotel to anyone visiting Dublin.

We booked this hotel because many others nearer to the city center were fully booked. It turned out to be a lucky break. The hotel was in a great location on a side street within a neighborhood, making the atmosphere quiet and relaxing, even with the windows open. Shops, pubs, and public transportation were available right around the corner. Access to city center and the DART were a comfortable 10 to 15 minute walk. The front desk staff were very kind and helpful, and the hotel had a number of thoughtful touches.

The hotel is not easily accessible from the airport. The air shuttle drops you off within a few a blocks, but that's difficult to manage with luggage. You can take the city bus from there, but it's still a hassle. Be prepared to pay 30 euro for taxi service to or from the airport.

Stayed here with husband. Lovely welcome with cocktails, impressive room although no bath but great shower, real milk for making tea and ipod in room with good music. We had a theatre package but couldn't book dinner til 6pm and show was at 7.30 so although dinner was fabulous we had to rush it to make show. I think restaurant should open at 5.30 to accommodate theatre package. Breakfast was lovely although service was quite slow. Would highly recommend this beautiful boutique hotel and only 10min walk from Stephen's Green.

Myself and my wife stayed here for 2 nights and found it to be a wonderful experience. The design and decoration are exceptional, the staff were really helpful and the food was to die for. It is set in a lovely part of Dublin that is within easy walking distance of Stephens Green. I recommend it most highly. Bring a little upmarket romance to your life - you deserve it :-)

This must be just about the best location in Dublin. Walkable distance to the town centre close by Aviva stadium and the RDS and in an area of fine restaurants and even finer pubs. The hotel is a boutique hotel nicely styled rooms are generally very good and the staff and services were first class. We booked through Mr and Mrs Smith which gave us a 'free' breakfast and wine if you dined in house. The breakfast is fine and the restaurant with fairly limited choice is also quite good. The bar is really nice and was very lively over the weekend. The few downsides include somewhat shabby carpets in the hallway and a bathroom that really doesn't work very well. The door opens on to a single sink and the shower above the bath makes the best of very limited space but is not what you want in a first class hotel. Overall we would come again if only for the location. Within minutes you have some great pubs Searsons for one with live jazz and fantastic bars and ambience. Down Baggot street you have great little cafes like Voila and first class Michelin restaurants.
